Have a big fancy camera, but don't know how to use it?  Sign up for private or group photography lessons!  

Liz Hansen offers photography lessons for beginning and intermediate students.  It's like signing your kids up for piano lessons, but it's photography lessons for YOU! Learn how to really use your camera and take your images to the next level.  Scroll down for more info about individual classes and pricing.



Learn how to use your “big camera!” Learn the fundamentals of photography to give your photos that dreamy, professional look.  I have 10+ years of teaching experience and know how to make photography fun and easy to understand. Each time we meet, I provide lesson materials, give you hands-on practice and leave you with a homework assignment to complete on your own.   

If you are moving through the material quickly, then I will move ahead with you!  I am flexible and committed to helping you meet your photography goals.  While you are an active student, I am available to provide feedback and answer questions in-between your scheduled lessons.  I am happy to schedule 1 hour, 1.5 hour or 2 hour appointments.


I often meet with students in my home studio in central Evanston.  I am also happy to meet you in the comfort of your own home.  We can also meet in another mutually convenient location.
